About Kilimanjaro Machame route

Approaching Mount Kilimanjaro from the southwest, Machame is the second most popular of the Kilimanjaro routes. It is also known as the “Whiskey” route since it is more arduous than the “Coca Cola” (Marangu) route owing to its longer and steeper walks, and lack of sleeping huts. Although Machame is regarded a difficult route, it paradoxically has a higher success rate than the Marangu Route.

Beginning at the south-west side of the mountain, the route takes around six day to complete; however, seven days is advised for a day should spent for acclimatization for safety reasons and for a higher probability of a successful summit. Climbers will sleep in designated campsites in tents. Trekkers have two options to reach Uhuru Peak. Majority of the trekkers choose the long Barafu Trail that offer the scenic view of the Rebmann Glacier. The other route is on the Western Breach Route, which is more thrilling and traverses through Lava tower and the Arrow Glacier.

The Machame Route is a very popular trail probably because climbers experience spectacular scenic beauty and diversity. The trail starts off by traversing through the lush, green rainforest to the moorlands and then to dry and dusty Shira Plateau. After climbing up to the Uhuru Peak in the Arctic climate zone, the descent is made on the steep Mweka Route, which allows trekkers to experience the dry mountain desert and the lowland forest. So, take this route if you want a more challenging and scenically varied trail to the mountain and don’t mind crowds.

Climbing to the roof of Africa with the support of a dedicated company Reviewed Tour: Kilimanjaro Trekking - Machame Route
Emma From Kenya At

“Climbing Kilimanjaro was always going to be an exceptional experience, and it certainly lived up to that. The climb itself was challenging but incredibly rewarding - the support team were dedicated, friendly and professional, ensuring that I had everything I required to succeed.
I was recommended Migration and Kili Expedition through a Tanzanian friend, and was blown away by the level of support given by Amos (the director) outside of the actual climb - personally helping me with my onward travel arrangements and other logistical requirements. It really was like being with a close friend and I thank him for that. It made my overall experience in Moshi and the surrounding area something truly memorable.”

“I did the Kilimanjaro 7 days-machame route with Enosa, and i could'nt be happier of how it went. Everything was perfect from the day they picked me from the AirPort and to the day i left. The owner Noel did everything to ensure i would have a good climb, and so did the guides and everyone involved in the actual climb. We were 5 climbers in the group and everyone of us made it to the top. So thanks for everything Enosa :)”

“My wife and I had an absolutely fantastic trek with Novi Travel & Tours to the top of Kilimanjaro. They customized our entire 8 day trip and helped assure all of our hard preparation work was fully rewarded when we reached our goal of Uhuru!

This was by far the most physically demanding and emotionally rewarding thing we have ever done!

Novi Travel & Tours came highly recommended to us by 2 friends who had taken separate treks with them. We agree that this is an exceptionally well handled Tanzanian company. The whole team was excellent and made our trek particularly memorable and fun with the enthusiastic singing and greetings by the team on several occasions. Other groups had greetings - but none were as frequent or as resonant as our Novi Travel & Tours team!

“My whole experience from booking my trek to the actual trek its self was very professional with Maasai Wanderings. I knew I was in good hands when I my emails were responded to quickly and I was provided a list of answers to my enquires. The guides were very friendly and professional and had great English and were able to give my information on the landscape itself and also help encourage me every step of the way. I would not have made it to the top without their encouragement and singing! My tent and mattress were comfortable and the food was also great considering were climbing a mountain. Overall I would highly recommend climbing Kili with Maasai Wanderings. You can tell that the staff are happy and well looked after by the company as they are long standing team members. ”

“I was part of a group of 3 hikers wishing to climb Kilimanjaro via the Machame route in 7 days. The experience was great and landscapes so amazing. In fact it was the second time I climbed Kilimanjaro. I wanted to renew this experience because the first time the weather conditions was very cloudy the three first days and also I was not completely satisfied of the company I chose at that time.

As such, I selected Maasai Wanderings for the good reviews I had and also because it is part of the Kilimanjaro Porters Assistance Project (you can have more details here: http://www.mountainexplorers.org/) that was a concern for me after my first experience. And what I can say is that I have not been disappointed, everything was perfect from the beginning to the end.

We were guided by Julius and his team that I recommend. He is a very nice guy, likable, always calm, encouraging you and giving all information required when you need it. He is adapting to you, and most of the time the first days, slowing you down to maximize a progressive acclimatization. I was interested by flowers and history of Kilimanjaro (snow cover, geology) and this guy is a big library.

Food was very good, varied and always in good quantity. It is surprising to see what the cooker is able to do in such conditions. There was a big mess tent where all meals were taken when it was not possible outside. The cooker is cooking just in front of you. The tent had also two extension rooms on each sides dedicated for staff (relaxing/sleeping). It was funny to see that despite of the altitude, the coldness etc. they were always happy, smiling, talking all time etc.

Everybody was dressed properly and adapted to the mountain conditions, even for the shoes. This is important to note because I have been very sad when I saw few other porters from other companies dressed just with a tee-shirt with holes everywhere or not descent shoes. When we reached the last camp (Barafu Hut) at around 13:00, one of the porter was sick and Julius, the guide, decided to escort him down to the gate quickly. He was back to Barafu Camp few hours before we left the camp to climb the final step and came with us! Everybody in the team successfully reached the top Uhuru Peak and of course everybody was very happy. Once again it has been an excellent trip and experience. I keep a lot of good memories.

For these reasons I recommend clearly Maasi Wanderings, for the quality of the guiding, the food, the tents, the team, all the equipments provided (and in good shape).”

“After climbing the Shira Route with Maasai Wanderings many years ago, I recently returned with my wife to trek the Machame Route so she could experience this great adventure. We were not disappointed. From start to finish Maasai Wanderings were great to deal with and it was good to see the folks at Maasai Wanderings were as eager to please today as they were when I first traveled with them.”
